Maintenance Planner allows planning changes in the landscape, based on SAP Solution Manager’s processes and data. Maintenance Planner can be leveraged by SAP Solution Manager 7.1 customers, and is mandatory for customers using SAP Solution Manager 7.2.

Maintenance Planner also enables a simplified up-to-date installation of a new system with a certain SP level, where the downloaded stack XML file can be handed over to Software Provisioning Manager.

Maintenance Planner is the successor of Maintenance Optimizer (as well as Landscape Planner, and LMDB Product System Editor). In SAP Solution Manager 7.1, Maintenance Optimizer was sunset on Jan 9, 2017.
